On Saturday the 1st of August, a number of events are taking place, in conjunction with the Haven Arms, to raise funds for this beautiful
Church which has dominated the local skyline for over 800 years. Eight centuries have taken their toll and the Church seeks funding for repairs and development. And involving the local community in a celebration of Yorkshire Day is a marvellous way to raise funds!
Yorkshire Day in Hedon will include a Treasure Trail, a Balloon Race, and a Fun Run. Tickets will be on sale in the Market Place from 9.30am onwards for these events, and also for the Grand Draw.
From 10am to 2pm the Church will be open for visitors and those that wish to climb the tower. The Church will host a variety of stalls, and light refreshments and lunches will be available. The Kingston Pipe Band will also play in the Market Place.
The action moves to the Haven Arms at 1.30pm where there will be a bouncy castle, the balloon race and a barbeque. The Fun Run will start at 2.30pm, the balloons will be released during the afternoon and the Raffle will be drawn at 4.30pm.
This event has been arranged with the help and co-operation of the Haven Arms.
